United stars expected to feature at Euro 2020

James Pogba and Maguire

Manchester United are used to sending many of their players to FIFA World Cups and UEFA European Championships alike. This summer will be no different, particularly with 24 European nations competing.

Among our star-studded lineup, here are the players we expect to feature at Euro 2020:

England: Mason Greenwood, Dean Henderson, Harry Maguire, Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw

Gareth Southgate could take five players with him to the European Championship. Goalkeeper Dean Henderson is competing with Jordan Pickford for the number one spot having recently been given a run out in the starting lineup at Manchester United.

Mason Greenwood is an outsider to make the squad but has really impressed down the right for us again this term. Jadon Sancho and Phil Foden offer stiff competition and have more experience at international level.

Luke Shaw should be competing with Ben Chilwell for a starting spot at left-back whilst Marcus Rashford also faces competition getting into the starting lineup. Harry Maguire is a certainty to start at centre-back.

France: Paul Pogba

The central midfielder usually performs better for the national team than us but Paul Pogba is having a better campaign than usual. I think he’ll be our only player wearing the France shirt this summer as Anthony Martial looks set to miss out.

France are the bookmakers’ second favourites to win the tournament. They are the World champions and are great value at 11/2. Anyone a little unsure could back them with a bonus Euro 2020 bet.

Netherlands: Donny van de Beek

Despite struggling for playing time since moving to us, Donny van de Beek was part of the Netherlands squad last month. The 24-year-old midfielder has some decent competition, but we think his place in the squad will be safe because they’re not as strong as they have been in previous decades.

Portugal: Bruno Fernandes

A candidate for the Premier League Player of the Season, Bruno Fernandes could be one of the stars this summer. Portugal are the defending champions, and the attacking midfielder will be playing alongside the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Bernardo Silva and Joao Felix.

Scotland: Scott McTominay

Yes, Scotland have qualified for their first major tournament since 1998. The eight additional teams, first added in 2016 has benefited the little nation. Scott McTominay chose to play for Scotland over his country of birth and will be one of their key players this summer. England, Croatia and the Czech Republic await.

Spain: David de Gea

David de Gea should remain Spain’s number one this summer despite losing his place at Manchester United. The 30-year-old has 45 caps for the national team.

Sweden: Victor Lindelof

Sweden have qualified for their sixth successive European Championships having only previously competed at Euro 1992 by way of being the hosts. Victor Lindelof is a regular at centre-back so we can expect the centre-back to feature in the group stage versus Spain, Poland and Slovakia.

Wales: Daniel James

The pacey winger hasn’t been a regular in our team, but you can be sure he will be a part of the Wales team this summer.
